^^^ Very good point. There was no more exposition on Khan's existence in TWOK as there was in this film.
There's a difference.The story in TWOK
assumes viewers have already seen Space Seed.
The Abrams movies are supposed to be for a "new" audience. I can't imagine a person who has never seen any Star Trek before understanding the significance of the Khan and the augments from what was onscreen in STID.
Then again, we might just be assuming that they won't understand.
I never read any of the Harry Potter books, and my friends assumed that I wouldn't understand the movies without them because the movies "left important things out." But then I went ahead and completely understood everything going on in the movies, even without all the supposedly-necessary backstory.
